The Los Angeles Rams are kicking off their mandatory minicamp on June 10 when the team will get together for a final time to build some chemistry before they take a summer break until the training camp. General manager Les Snead has done a good job this offseason addressing some of their most pressing roster needs, especially through the draft. Targeting three defenders in the first three rounds of the draft should help the Rams on that end to improve on the surprising 10-7 season they had in 2023.

As improved as they should be from last season, the Rams still have holes on the roster. Fortunately for them, there are still some veteran free agents available on the market that could really help them in terms of depth. Let's explore.

Donovan Smith

The most glaring need on the Rams roster right now is an offensive tackle. They are currently projected to start Rob Havenstein at right tackle and Alaric Jackson at left. The depth behind them is less than ideal.

Plus, Havenstein is already 32 and Jackson is unproven as a one-year starter. Adding one more established veteran in there could do wonders for this team.

Donovan Smith, with his extensive postseason and Super Bowl experience, can provide that much-needed depth. At this stage of his career, the former Chiefs man can be expected to decline but he is still a solid pass protector. He missed nine games over the last two seasons, so he may be difficult to pencil in as a full-time starter. But on a one-year deal, the Rams could do much worse than taking a flyer on Smith.
